After a new installation of CAVI server (versions 4.8.x,4.9.x and 4.10.x) the /etc/hosts looks like:


<privateIP> <URL> vdchost-server <URL> vdchost-db vdchost-smtp

<privateIP> vdchost-wsrmi vdchost-dispatcher vdchost-probe

<privateIP> vdchost-ipcam

<privateIP> vdchost-keyscan


where the field <URL> is the url given at installation time.


to avoid pop-up messages and network errors at login time, ensure any additional alias or URL that should be resolved to the VI server IP is added in the end of this line:

<privateIP> <URL> vdchost-server <URL>

So the new line looks like:

<privateIP> <URL> vdchost-server <URL> <newalias> <newalias2>
